Every community association will face a major reconstruction project several times in the life of the development. This may occur because of anticipated problems, such as re-roofing or re-painting, but it can also occur because of completely unanticipated,and unreservedfor, problems, such as dry rot, soil subsidence, or leaks in windows and siding.
There are two different outcomes to any attempt to repair hidden damage. The first is a predictable project that succeeds in repairing the damage within the associations financial means. The second part is so unexpected and expensive to repair that it overwhelms the associations resources.
Next to damage from a natural disaster, a big, unexpected construction project is probably one of the most disruptive events in an associations life. Some associations never recover.
So what are your associations options?
Learn what your association can do when facing hidden damage in the booklet, The Perils of Hidden Damage.
